Raising Rock Stars Preschool ~ Letter Dd

 Raising Rock Stars Preschool Letter D



Rock stars This is the main section of our preschool posts-focusing on what we do for our Raising Rock Stars Preschool Curriculum. I am not sharing photos of each part every week, just what I happen to catch! We do the entire unit even if I don’t show it here in the photos!

Our letter this week ~ Dd, our verse: Do all things without complaining or disputing.Dd

The first thing Krash does each week is color his Bible verse page.  He is very particular and likes for me to hang the main page above his desk so he can copy the colors exactly.  I tell him that it doesn’t have to match, but matching makes him happy!

This week we added our cubes to the mix, inserting our vocabulary cards into 1 bock and our Bible vocabulary into another one. We rolled these around naming different things.  We even used the vocabulary block with Ladybug also, teaching her the names of the pictures!IMG_5335 Jenn has created a set of RRSP Education Cubes printables that fit perfectly also!  You can see those here if you use RRSP and have an Education Cubes membership!

We worked really hard on the application portion of this unit, as his words are something he really struggles with.  The craft gave us a lot of time to sit together and discuss this as he colored each one.  My goal with these simple crafts is more about the talking between parent {or caregiver} and child that will occur while the craft is being completed.  This is definitely a PROCESS over PRODUCT activity!IMG_5342

Here’s the photo of his work from the week before I cleared it off {links to the non-RRSP sheets are below}!

RRSP Dd lesson plan is also on the same webpage! Dd Lesson Plan  Included is our exact plan {although I stray from my plan often}, with links to everything we used. Page 2 is blank in case you don’t do exactly what we do!

He worked on his Dd is for Duck Play Doh pageIMG_5091

He did his very first dot to dot.  I chose a simple one using ABCs.  He struggled a bit but enjoyed it.IMG_5095

This boy LOVES to color, so he was THRILLED with this Dd dinosaur coloring sheet from ABC Twiggles {membership site}IMG_5134

He loves coloring SO much that I am creating an entire new color by number set!  He really loves color-by-number so that’s what they are!  You can download D is for Dog here!IMG_5296

I have had his Alphabet Box ready for awhile now {thanks to inspiration from Counting Coconuts}, but have not brought it out until now.  I decided to begin with the current sound and 1 other sound for now and let him sort the objects.  He loved this and it was the perfect skill level for him right now.  He struggled a bit, but not too much that he felt defeated.

The flash cards are from the preschool program {Little Lincoln} he uses through our cyber school {although I don’t write about it because I am not very fond of it and am really doing my own thing as you can tell}.  The flash cards are great though and we love using those.  When I find time, I will share why I am not entirely fond of the program, I just don’t have time for an in depth post about it now.

I went over the objects with him {they were laying on the tray all mixed up}.  Then had him sort them by beginning sound.  I had to help him with some, as he is not solid in this skill yet.  He really enjoyed the process though!

We had loads of fun working on sight words.  We used the 1st 6 words from our RRSP review set again, but this time I put them in a cube. We reviewed the words and then played a throwing game.  I had Krash throw the block at our storage shelf {which can’t be damaged}, as hard as he could!  Then he had to run as fast as he could to get the block and read the word it landed on.  He loved this!!!  If he struggled, I allowed him to run back to Pac Man for a little bit of help {this was to encourage team work and bonding}.  I actually have a video of us playing, I will share that soon {Video is now here}!

Although Pac Man was the one to set up the lovely farm scene, Krash LOVED it and played for a really long time!  Learning Links as hay and water, Rainbow Blocks as a fence, and Block Mates for the farm animals!IMG_5240

 

 

Moms favWe were away on staff retreat recently and the place has an indoor pool.  I just love how Krash wears his shark goggles, with his ears all folded over ;-).IMG_5422
